You can learn a lot about yourself if you pay careful attention for one full year. Here are 365 daily meditations that, through their brutal confessionalism, will unearth the stoic in you. God Bless the Broken Bones won't tickle your ears with pleasant words. Instead what you'll find is a year of one man's seemingly uncensored thoughts, fears, frustrations, longings, gratitude, and self-exhortations. Raw yet eloquent, William Ferraiolo's musings reveal the daily challenges to living a life of equanimity and honor, and why there's no worthier goal. At times this book might offend you. It will certainly challenge you. And if you're willing, it might change you. I recommend you see for yourself. Seth J. Gillihan, PhD, author of Retrain Your Brain: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in 7 Weeks.
